Myth III Details
9:10 AM | Max Dyckhoff | Comment on this story
The much-anticipated announcement of Myth III : The Wolf Age has revived an already lively game community built around the previous two titles, and the recent Fanfest in San Francisco has fed this fire. The team from Mumbo Jumbo - an offshoot of Ritual Entertainment - was there to answer questions. The team includes a number of creative Myth II community members, and reports suggest that they appear to be very well staffed, giving a huge amount of potential to Myth III as a true Myth project.
A number of points were discussed - SiliconDream of rampany.net says this about the project:
These guys are very interested in having a complex and consistent story. I'm ten times as excited about Myth III story-wise after hearing them discuss certain elements of their plot. They're obviously extremely well-versed in the backstory.The team also talked about "procedural foliage" - a buzzword which means that trees will no longer be static objects, but will sway with the wind, and be blasted to pieces by explosions nearby, causing branches to snap off, and trunks to collapse.
Myth III has no set release date, but the team were hoping for it to be released before Christmas this year, an extremely ambitious goal considering that the previous titles took almost two years to complete apiece.
